spending my Friday evening with a bowl of blueberries, some Greek yogurt, and a Glenn Gould documentary.

Listening to Rosalyn Tureck’s Bach recordings has been one of the best decisions I’ve made this summer. :3

Transcribing a Mongolian folk tune for my friend.

“There is no end to the details one could strive for, but… the desire for perfection could also be a deadly weakness. Living comfortably in that paradox, without even knowing it, is part of being a musician. There’s a labyrinth of voices inside your head, a counterpoint of self-awareness and the remembered sayings of your guides and mentors, who don’t always agree. Sometimes you wish you could go back and ask your teachers again to guide you; but up there onstage, exactly where they always wanted you to be, you must simply find your way. They have given all the help they can; the only person who can solve the labyrinth of yourself is you.”
— Jeremy Denk, pianist

“Sebastian Bach, as a rule, does not indicate tempo at all, which in a purely musical sense is perhaps best. He may have said to himself: whoever does not understand my themes and figures, and does not feel their character and expression, will not be much the wiser for an Italian indication of tempo.”
